    I am in the process of developing a pretty serious website. I am at the point to where I need to think about ranking well in the search engines with my site.

    What I am looking for is advice on how I should organize the structure of my website. The goal is to have as many pages as possible ranking in the search engines, so I want to make sure my site links/urls and pages are optimized the best they can be for the search engines.

    If anyone knows someone that offers a service or advice on information like this please pm me. I am looking for a write-up of the best seo suggestions for building the site pages.

    Well...

    I think some of the most important things are to make sure each page targets a unique keyphrase/search term if your goal is having a ton of pages and ranking them all.

    So you're going to want to be sure your meta description and title tags for each page are unique to that page (centered around the targeted term) rather than a static one for all of your pages (lots of platforms use a shared header that contains the same meta data for each page and you don't want that). With a lot of low competition long tail keywords this can do it alone as long as you have done the normal SEO for your site as a whole. On this same note also use your targeted search term in the URL for your page (like if your term is "paint color prices" your page should be like site.com/page-color-prices.html or whatever).

    On this same note you're going to want the actual content (try to get at least a few paragraphs like 300+ words) on the page to echo and be on topic of the keyword/search phrase you picked out for that page.

    As mentioned above you will do best targeting low competition keywords for your pages if you're planning on doing a lot of them. You can always target more competitive terms but this will probably require you to do more off site SEO (backlinks) for your individual pages as opposed to primarily doing it for your root/main page and then letting your other pages roll with that authority.

    Also you're gonna want to have a good internal linking structure. WordPress does this well if you're not going to use a platform like WP you should at least take some advice from how they do it. There are pages like categories and archives that will link to pages that fit there so basically each page is linked to a few times (preferably once also on your main/most authority page along with some other sitemap type pages) throughout your site as a whole. This will help them get indexed but also to get crawled more frequently and to sort of show the search engines that you have a lot of content in the same niche on the same site which helps provide more authority to your site overall.

    You are, of course, also going to want to go for a good backlinking campaign for your root page and it never hurts to build some links for your pages as well; more links for the sub pages the more competitive it is. I also recommend using a tool (even something free and only semi auto like onlywire.com) to social bookmark all your pages as that can work wonders on low competition keywords.

    Anyways pretty basic but when I'm doing large niche sites and trying to rank each page for a long tail that's the most important factors in my experience.

    Wow, thanks a lot for your input. That's some very helpful info.

    My website is kinda of like a ecommerce store, so I will be listing 1000's of products on the website (each product getting their own unique page)

    So I guess the best file structure possible for the search engines would be something like:
    http://domain.com/tablets/buy-apple-ipad-16gb-wifi.php

    Would it help me get more traffic to the site if I create another very similar page, but with a few keyword changes? Something like:
    http://domain.com/tablets/purchase-apple-ipad-16gb-wifi.php

    Thanks again for the input.
